saving multiple records in the cache

Hello,

I'm trying to build an app to save some data when I am offline.

Basically, I have no internet connection for the whole day, but I need to enter data and save the records, several time during the day, going in and out of the app.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to do it, because each time I enter a new record it seems like it overwrites the previous one in the cache.

So in the end I never managed to have a full list of "offline records". I always end up with only the last record.

I have looked at the different tutorials on internet but it seems like i am missing something but I don't know what.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks a lot

Hi @blue_lotus. If you had some examples of the code you're using, it would be easier to assist. You might try watching Daniel Christians recent Offline Video for ideas.
Good luck!

Re: saving multiple records in the cache

Hi @blue_lotus,

Could you please share more details about formula you used to save your data into your local device (save in cache) when your app is offline?

More details about creating a Offline capability app, please check the following blog:

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/build-offline-apps-with-new-powerapps-capabilities/

 

Please make sure you use LoadData function to load the cache data into an existing Collection (CurrentCollection) when you start your app.

When you want to submit your records, use Collect function to submit your records into this Collection (CurrentCollection), and then use SaveData function to store this Collection (CurrentCollection) into your local device (save in cache).

More details about SaveData function and LoadData function, please check the following article:

SaveData, LoadData function

 

Please also check and see if the following video would help in your scenario:
